Font de sa Cala, found on the North East Coast of Mallorca, is a small, ideal place to spend a holiday, located very close to the tourist nucleus of Cala Ratjada. Here we find a handful of tourist accommodation like hotels and villas. Font de sa Cala belongs to the municipality of Arta, home to around 8,000 inhabitants, an area with plenty to do and see for people on holiday here. There is also a wide range of excursions and tours from Font de sa Cala itself to visit other parts of the island.
The name Font de sa Cala refers to two fresh water springs (fonts) in the area: one above ground and one underground, which make the sea water colder than other areas of Mallorca and also less salty.
Being an island, probably one of your priorities will be to enjoy the sea and the beach. For sea lovers, Font de sa Cala offers a beautiful cove with fine sand and clear waters with a rocky area ideal for snorkelling. The Font de sa Cala beach is 100m wide and offers tourist facilities such as sunbeds and umbrellas, pedalos, bar, etc.
From the beach at Font de sa Cala the glass bottom boat departs, taking passengers around the east coast of Mallorca.

The dolphin watching catamaran tour also departs from Cala Ratjada.
